Rockstar have also mentioned their dedication to solo gaming in the following months, promising updates for both games that include ways to play alone. Red Dead Online will receive new employment opportunities and GTA Online has already been marked for solo content updates in 2021.
The post ended by tantalising fans with the promise of more, stating they should “keep a lookout for more celebratory events in the near future for the chance to score new gear, bonus GTA$ and a free vehicle in GTA Online, and a range of new offers and Rewards in Red Dead Online.”
